Bodhicharya Kent is hosted by our welcoming and accommodating friends at the Quaker Meeting House in Rochester. We would like to raise awareness about their Open House Project and encourage anyone who is interested to help out and get involved if you can, as they are always looking for volunteers.

It’s a Community Project for homeless and vulnerable people run by volunteers from the Quaker community, Rochester Cathedral and many other individuals from the surrounding area.

We are not a food bank and we do our best to offer respect to guests at all times and expect the same.

We offer soup, sandwiches, drinks and biscuits to up to 70 guests and usually have takeaway bags and clothes to give away.

The project is open to guests between 2pm and 4pm every Saturday and for longer periods over Christmas. Donations of food and clothes are best handed in here between 1-4 pm on Saturdays. The project costs £5000 a year to run and we are all volunteers.

Please email Sally at for further information and if you would like to get involved in any way.

You can find us at the Quaker Meeting House, Northgate, ME1 1 LS, next to the car park and opposite the corn exchange.”
